To simulate virtual users on remote stations, add the needed workstations to your test project and specify the number of virtual users to be simulated on each station.

Remote stations you add to your load test must meet the following requirements:

  • Load stations must have LoadComplete Remote Agent installed.

    The Remote Agent is a utility shipped with LoadComplete. It can simulate virtual users, so there is no need to install LoadComplete on remote workstations if the Remote Agent is already installed there.

    We recommend that you use the Remote Agent version and build that matches your LoadComplete version and build. Differences between them may cause issues in tests and with data transfer.

    For more information on the utility, see LoadComplete Remote Agent Reference.

  • The computer from which you are going to control load testing (the one where your load test project is running) must have network access to the load stations where virtual users are to be simulated.

    Network communication between workstations is provided by Remote Agent via the TCP protocol. The connection is not secured and traffic they exchange is not encrypted.

    For information on preparing your local and remote load stations for testing, see Setting Up Remote Agent Stations.

  • Remote Agent must be running on the remote stations during the load test run.

    Note: By default, Remote Agent is launched automatically at the operating system startup. For information on how to launch Remote Agent on load stations manually, see Starting and Stopping LoadComplete Remote Agent.
